Today's Opinions

  • Proposed bill would deny dignity to the denying

    A new “death with dignity” bill was proposed in the Indiana Legislature this month, similar to one that was introduced last year but never advanced out of its committee. It would allow terminally ill patients, with their doctor’s approval, to seek medication that, when taken, would kill them.

    We disagree and believe allowing physicians allowing physicians to basically prescribe suicide is morally wrong.

  • Trump’s ironic call for tougher libel laws

    Donald J. Trump is the master of irony. Take his promise to toughen this nation’s libel laws.

    “We want fairness,” the president said. “Can’t say things that are false, knowingly false, and be able to smile as money pours into your bank account.”

    Really? You can’t say things that are false? This from the man who claimed Barack Obama was born in Africa and that the father of Sen. Ted Cruz had been involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

  • Good riddance to Trump’s election fraud commission

    Occasionally, America’s system of democracy exhibits its resilience by purging unworthy attempts to alter it.

    The demise of President Donald Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is a shining example.

    The start of a new year brings plenty of opportunities to get involved in our community, from volunteering your time toward a cause you find important to running for office. Even if your original New Year’s resolutions have fallen by the wayside, there’s time to become and stay involved. You’ll be happier and so will others in our community who need the help.

  • Silvesternacht certainly was cold but warm in community spirit

    On behalf of the members of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for all those who assisted in planning and hosting the sixth annual Silvesternacht celebration on New Year’s Eve. 

    It would not be possible without the enthusiastic collaboration between the city of Tell City, local businesses and organizations and Tell City Troy Township School Corp. 

  • Tell City Kiwanis Club says ‘thank you’

    The Tell City Kiwanis Club would like to thank the many generous individual donors who helped make the Kiwanis Christmas Basket Program possible this year.

    Thank you to thePerry County News for Jan. 1 editorial, “Department of Child Services claims demand attention.”  I hope it helps to educate the public about this serious problem in Indiana and especially in the five counties that compose Indiana House District 74 (Crawford, Dubois, Orange, Perry and Spencer).

  • Succulents for successful indoor blooms

    Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle. I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.
